Veteran ID Cards

The Burlington County Veteran Services and Sheriff’s Department have partnered to provide Burlington County Veterans with a free Veteran Photo ID Card. These cards identify veterans who served in our armed forces, and received an honorable discharge following their military service.

Benefits
These cards give veterans the ability to receive discounts or benefits offered by stores and restaurants. Many establishments offer 10% or more in discounts to our vets, who have had to carry their DD214 discharge document to prove their military status.

Disclaimer
The cards are not valid to conduct official business or to secure veterans benefits. Military retirees and those veterans holding VA Health Care Cards can use these cards as proof of veteran status, and do not require the Veteran ID card.

Successes
In September, there were 4 dates where services were offered to veterans to come to the Human Services Building in Westampton. Over 650 veterans took advantage of this service, held between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to get their free ID cards. Additional dates were also held at the County Administration building the week of October 4th.
